The Tarentaise Valley is steeped in history. Celtic tribes once roamed and controlled the valley, and Hannibal and his elephants supposedly passed through here on their 218BC march towards Rome.
Modern times have capitalised on the valley’s impressive geography and brought about two major phenomena of technological development: hydroelectric schemes to power big industry downstream, and a number of world-renowned ski resorts. Indeed the Tarentaise is now home to the world’s three largest ski areas and, every year, hundreds of thousands of skiers, bikers, hikers visit these resorts.
We love this valley but at the end of an epic day on the hill, could never find a decent beer, that wasn’t mass-produced, fizzy, and full of additives.
After witnessing the meteoric rise of craft beer in the UK and USA we decided that in 2018, enough was enough. The Tarentaise needs quality, locally produced beer. And thus Sapaudia Brewing Co. was born.
The brewery is located in the heart of the Valley, and we have 40 ski resorts within delivery range. Using state of the art brewing equipment, we’re able to produce up to 10000 litres of beer per month.
We work totally independently of any distributors, meaning that we manage the entire process from selecting ingredients to brewing, orders, and delivery. This ensures we can sell high-quality, innovative, local beer for the fairest price possible to both stockists and the end consumer.
Our mission is simple: to provide independently-produced quality craft beer for the locals and tourists of the Tarentaise Valley and beyond.
